BATON ROUGE – Looking for some unexpectedly fun brass music? An upcoming concert featuring alternative brass band Mnozil Brass could be just the thing.

 

The comically and musically entertaining Mnozil Brass, a world-class brass septet from Austria, will perform “Magic Moments” on Sunday, March 25, at 8 p.m. in the LSU Student Union Theater. The concert is part of LSU’s Performing Arts Series.

 

Mnozil Brass’ unique combination of skillful playing and sketch humor is a singular experience not to be missed and will make even the staunchest music lover laugh out loud. In the group’s latest show, titled “Magic Moments,” the seven masters of perceptive brass and song will move and enchant the audience. Throughout finely chiseled arrangements and charming original compositions, the splendid tone colors and timbres of their priceless brass instruments are shown to their full advantage. The groups’ performances are best described as “slapstick meets brass band,” mixing thrilling instrumental skills and fine acting.

The LSU Performing Arts Series is a series of concert events supported by a special fee that was approved by the student body in 1997. The subsidy helps underwrite the costs associated with bringing world-class performances to the LSU campus and community. This series features chamber music, cutting-edge theatre, solo artists and dance companies. Frequently, these guest artists also present master classes and clinics while on campus. These latter events are lagniappe and are usually made available to students and the general community free of charge.
